Performing Arts

Our state-of-the-art Presentation and Performance Centre provides a versatile venue for students to develop and showcase their skills in the Performing Arts.

Instrumental Music

Tuition is offered on a large range of woodwind, brass, percussion and string instruments during school time. Students learning at the College are expected to be a part of large ensembles that rehearse before or after school. Students who learn outside of school are also encouraged to participate in the choir and ensembles with the school. A music camp is held in May for junior ensembles while senior students have the opportunity to tour in December. Past tours have taken students to Adelaide, East Gippsland, Sydney, and the Victorian high country.

A Rock Program is offered to students who play contemporary instruments such as electric guitar, drums, bass guitar and voice. Rehearsals are held each week and time is set aside for each group to make a recording of their original songs or covers.

College concerts and soirees are held throughout the year in different locations and students are encouraged to participate in the regional concert held at Hamer Hall.

AMEB exams can be undertaken at all levels.

Drama

Drama is an integral part of the Arts Program at each year level, culminating in the opportunity for students to undertake VCE Drama.

The College offers a range of performance opportunities for students via the House Performing Arts Festival and the College Production. Students are involved in a variety of capacities, gaining experience in performance, direction, and backstage tasks. The  College also trains students as theatre technicians, giving them experience in lighting, sound and projection operation.

Through participation in the biennial House Drama Competition, with its emphasis on student direction, students are able to display leadership, initiate and creativity. The College Production allows students a chance to participate in a large-scale performance, and work with students from a variety of year levels and skill sets.
